Raid Report 11/12/12
Tanks: Slim and Doom
Healers: Sid, Archaz and Klog
Ranged: Zal, Bel, Littlesky, Noheel, Akee and Aph
We only had 9 people so I managed to persuade the wonderful Akee to step in and show us how to DPS.
Our first few pulls say us dying very early on. Archaz had a few problems with lag but we soon worked out that I had made the assumption that Archaz was geared to heal Will, when actually he has been very unlucky on loot drops and he was struggling to keep the tanks alive. So Klog stepped in for Archaz.
We wiped at 4% as I hadn't really planned to get so far in one pull. We then agreed that once we hit the final phase we CC the adds and keep them away from the healers and simply burn down the boss. Our next pull saw a much better final phase and we managed to kill it.
We were going to start HoF but Galleon spawned so we joined a very unsuccessful raid for that (there were a lot of alliance and several PvP tagged people). By the we got back to raid we didn't have long enough to have a good go at HoF so we called it.
Really good night. The first few wipes were my fault. I really should have checked gear before assuming we could heal it. I had no idea Archaz had had such bad luck with loot drops. Hopefully a few LFR runs and kills of the early MSV bosses will resolve this.
Really pleased that we have now cleared MSV. Hopefully it will be a nice quick clear and we can get stuck in to HoF, so make sure you look up tactics.
